Duration:30 seconds
Wobbling silver craft seen in Carlsbad, CA with bright light in broad daylight.

I was driving one mile east of Interstate 5 on Palomar Airport Rd. when I looked to my front left and saw a triangular craft wobling and flying slowly (about 40mph) south about three hundred feet above the landscape. The craft looked like it was totally stainless steel, had no visible windows and when tilted I could see the whole tail edge was lit with a very bright light (like the lights of a night baseball game} there were no clouds in the sky and the craft just disappeared in one second though it was no more than a half mile away. There was no sound from the craft.

*note about five years ago while driving at night in Carlsbad my wife and I saw a bright comet like fireball emitting splashes of bright light to its rear travelling about 50 mph in a southeasterly direction towards Rancho Sante Fe going cross country following the contours of the land. There was no road that it followed. This was about four miles from the above sighting. I reported this via email at the time.
